I think its more of a "Status Symbol" thing. I mean, if the public didnt demand the status and exclusivity of these kind of cards, then why would there be $200,000 cars? The $200,000 car is going on the same road as the $2,000 Pinto! (although Im sure its getting more stares than the Pinto, unless you happen to be a Pinto fan) :)

Trust me, I get plenty of stares at my car and it is neither because the car is expensive, nor because the observers are fans of rusting high-mileage Ford Festivas! ;-) Then again, maybe I'm not getting the kind of stares one might generally desire. The darn car won't break down though, so I just keep on driving it.
